Hans Keller at 100
2019 marks the centenary since the birth of Hans Keller, one of the most original and influential musical thinkers in Britain during the forty years that followed the second world war. This was a particularly vital period for music in Britain, fuelled by public funding on an unprecedented scale amid rapid social and technological change. This talk examines the development of Keller's thought against that background, and explores what his legacy might be for our own changing times.
Dr Garnham is a Visiting Research Fellow at the Faculty of Music, Cambridge University.
The Music Research Series invites researchers from across the country, and from within the department, to present and discuss their work. The Series is a space for the development of cutting-edge research in music, and for the training of postgraduate and Early Career Researchers from Goldsmiths and elsewhere.
The sessions bring together scholars, practitioners, and people working in music outside the university. They may include formal papers, panel discussions, conversations, or any other format that suits the research.
